I love this salon! This is the place to go for high quality service and Aveda product! I have been following Manomi (owner/manager) and her talented staff for over 20 years here in the Desert. She owned and operated a salon on El Paseo for many, many years. She also managed the salon/spa at Palm Springs high end Givenchy Resort Hotel (now the Le Parker Meridien Palm Springs). Trained in London, and with a lifetime in the industry, Manomi and her shop deliver every single time! Go in to Alankara, you will leave looking absolutely stunning.
Alankara is my #1 pick for salons in the Coachella Valley. Whenever I return to the desert, I am sure to visit here because I know I am in good hands. Most recently, I got a cut & color with Michelle, who has put me on track to return to blonde after rashly going almost black for winter. It looks great. The owner, Manomi, and her staff is friendly, laid-back and professional, making sure I was comfortable during my entire experience. In fact, I was so thrilled that I made an appointment for my brother the next day. 5/5 stars!
This is the place I go to recharge my mind body and soul. Nicole takes care of my hair, Ionie my face, and Sophie my nails. But more than the cut/color, facial, and manicure/pedicure, it is the atmosphere that I love. The owner/management ensures that the salon is a place that people love being in. From the Aveda rituals, teas, and the professional and laid back staff, you feel a warmth throughout your experience. I ALWAYS leave the shop feeling confident, healthy, and beautiful.
One of the few quality shops that offer great mens services. I am in my late twenties, and have tough hair to cut. With a change in my hair line =(, I was looking for a new look. Richard was a master! He gave me one of the best haircuts I have had. He did take a bit longer than I expected, but it was worth the wait. He is truly passionate about his craft, and gave me a style that really compliments my head shape. No more barber shops for me...Thanks a lot Rich! I love it!
Very talented & friendly staff. I came in Alankara for the first time to support a cause that they were donating proceeds towards, but had a great experience and will definitely be returning. It has a great atmosphere and everyone was super friendly. I had relatively long hair and was cutting most of it off for the first time in a few years. Michelle helped me figure out what I was looking for and made it good great. Highly recommended!
Exceptional! Because we are new to the desert, I searched the internet for a local salon. After reading the outstanding reviews about Michelle, I made an appointment with her for a cut. Not only is she bright and funny, she enhances your experience with the most relaxing head massage during your shampoo. The cut and styling were terrific, too. Thanks, Michelle. I will be back!
Cant rate them badly, but just want to give a heads up on pricing, an updo starts at $65, makeup $70 and false lashes $30, so Id be looking at $170 to get dolled up for a special occasion...way out of my price range as a military spouse :( Im sure its a lovely salon
Great atmosphere! I got a Brazilian blow-out, it left my hair in great condition, and sooo easy to manage. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable....I highly recommend!
nathan is phenominal...jackie is the sweetest. both listen and perform. a little slice of pampering style
Love my color! So hard to find a colorist that kills it every time.
Fabulous salon! I love coming here when Im in the Desert!
The manicure I had was bad. It was about 25.
Sophie Cordoba is amazing.
